Parshas Vayechi


 Yaakov's casket in Goren Atad.

This is based on the following Rashi from the Medrash

Our rabbis explained that the place Goren Atad was named for an event. Every king of Canaan and the princes of Yishmaal came for war and when they saw the crown of Joseph hanging on the casket of Yaakov, they all stood and hung their crowns. The casket was surround with crowns like a threshing floor that is surround with thorns:

רש"י על בראשית פרק נ פסוק י 
ור"ד (סוטה יג) על שם המאורע שבאו כל מלכי כנען ונשיאי ישמעאל למלחמה וכיון שראו כתרו של יוסף תלוי בארונו של יעקב עמדו כולן ותלו בו כתריהם והקיפוהו כתרים כגורן המוקף סייג של קוצים:

Bottom - chocolate pudding frozen with crushed graham crackers on top.
Cake - baked in a loaf pan. Frosted with chocolate mixed with white to give it wood like grain.

After 14 years, Yaakov was ready to leave. Lavan negotiated for him to stay. Yaakov agreed that any sheep that were born that were spotted and speckled would be his salary. Lavan switched his salary 10 times, but Hashem still allowed him to become wealthy.

Parshas Toldos


Yaakov & Esav were born in this week's Parsha. Yaakov was born holding on to Esav's heel. They were twins. Esav was red and liked to fight whle Yaakov grew up and liked to learn Torah.

I split the cake into two loaf pans and trimmed the sides to make the legs & arms.

The heads, hands and feet came from dolls from the dollar store. I carved into the cake to force the head in and then sealed it with frosting.


Esav asks Yaakov to give him from the red stuff - lentils. We tried making lentil soup out of red lentils but the color came out yellow. I tried adding red food coloring which turned it orange. Perhaps Yaakov used brown lentils which could be considered red?
